Woman who lost fiancé in Lion Air crash takes wedding photos alone

Oscar PerryNov 17, 2018

The FAA on November 7 issued an emergency airworthiness directive ordering U.S. airlines to incorporate information about the feature in their pilot manuals.

"It is information that we were not privy to in training or in any other manuals or materials", he said.

USA aviation safety experts and pilots associations say Boeing didn't tell them about a new flight-control system on 737 MAX aircraft, a sensor which Indonesian officials think could be involved in the deadly Lion Air crash.

The fiancee of an Indonesian man killed when his flight crashed into the sea has taken their wedding pictures alone in a bid to "fulfil his last wish".

Reports suggest the feature could take over control of the plane even during manual operation by the pilots.

"We were just joking at that time", Ms Syari told The Associated Press overnight.

Some Chiefs and Rams Players 'Seriously Considering' Not Playing in Mexico City
The Week 11 match-up between the Rams and the Chiefs is the latest regular season game between two one-loss teams since 1990. Per ESPN , the Westgate Las Vegas opened betting on the O/U at 64 points, which would be the highest over/under since 1986.

"The crew may have been hampered in their efforts to understand the airplane's behavior, and regain control, by the fact that they were missing a key piece of information - the existence of an automatic system that could adjust the trim, even when the airplane's autopilot was switched off", Douglas Harned, an analyst at Bernstein Research, said in a note to clients. Pilots speaking with the outlet claim they weren't properly trained on the safety feature, which automatically adjusts an aircraft's nose downward in the event of disturbance.

Even though this problem was - according to investigators - not covered in the operating manual, pilots did have access to a checklist created to turn off errant systems when the plane started nosing downwards at the wrong time, said Soejono, a Lion Air instructor who like many Indonesians goes by one name. "Safety remains our top priority and is a core value for everyone at Boeing", the company said.

Boeing's financial guidance is "at risk after it delivered only 57 airplanes and 43 737s in October", compared to the 72 737s per month the company needs to meet its 2018 build rate, says Bloomberg Intelligence analyst George Ferguson.

In a letter to pilots on November 10, the APA said Boeing's recent "Emergency Airworthiness Directive" had not addressed the key question of incorrect readings from Angle of Attack sensors, which monitor the angle of an aircraft's nose. But if pilots did not know exactly what system was in place, or that the data being fed into the system was wrong, their reactions could be fatally muddled, aviation experts said. The Boeing 737 MAX 8 then made another flight to Jakarta that same day, and the pilots reported further problems.

Its cockpit voice recorder could offer crucial answers on the pilots' conduct and the alarms that sounded during the accident. It does this by gathering data from the plane's pitot tube and the static port, which essentially compare differentials in the air pressure to arrive at the plane's speed and the altitude. "People panicked. It dropped about 400 feet", passenger Robbi Gaharu said.

Dr Pratama, a medical doctor, had flown to Jakarta for training three days before and was on the plane heading home when it plunged into the Java Sea, minutes after take-off.
